Shortly after, Newton reflected on his career with the Panthers in a vlog, titled "Farewell Carolina, Hello New England," from his YouTube channel.
In the footage, Newton spoke candidly from his Atlanta home gym on March 17 – which was the day the Panthers announced they gave him permission to seek a trade – bringing the athlete's nine-year run with Carolina to an end.
"Right now, like I'm angry, I just feel let down but at the same time, I'm not bitter," the athlete said in the vlog.

Newton added, "I'm blessed, I'm honored. I have no idea what's the next steps. But one thing about it, through God's grace, there will be a next step."
